Sorry for the constant posts today!
But reading everyone's blogs is getting me excited about the whole prospect of losing weight
I was talking to my sister about my goals
I don't want to set myself up for failure, I want to make realistic goals
I've been told that setting a date to achieve each goal may not be the best way to go about it
So how do I do it?!
My surgery is exactly 20 weeks before New Years eve...So I thought I might reward myself if I lose 20kg (44 lb) by that time. But I don't even know if that's possible!
I know everyone is different, but what is your average weight loss?
Is 1kg a week pushing it?
Should I instead aim for half a kg (1 lb)a week??
I just don't know what to expect!!
I also had a look at how much I would need to lose to get to a healthy BMI
at the moment i'm 5ft and 124kg (273 lb) so my BMI is 55 (morbidly obese)
to get into the healthy range, I need to get down to 55kg (121 lb)
that means I would need to lose about 70kg (154 lb)
Thats a HUGE loss! So huge it doesnt even seem possible
eeeeep I really don't want to set myself up to fail
but I really like the sound of being under 60kg for once!!
